Without doubt, the innocence of Sidemen is reflected throughout the valley as it still remains unblemished and untouched by mainstream tourism.

Local villagers are friendly and welcoming and are just as curious about you as you are about them! Don’t be surprised if you get invited into their homes for a cup of coffee!
Trek along the rice terraces as farmers tend their crops, follow the ducks heading home from a day in the fields having pecked away at the insects – a natural insecticide! Soak up the atmosphere in the local morning market as the villagers sell their produce fresh from the fields.
